I guess NFL players are only afraid of needles when it comes to blood testing.

Nevertheless A surgical or genetic modification to "pad" the brain will not happen. The brain needs to be loose in the skull in order to accommodate the intermittent normal swelling that occurs regularly to a response to blood flow/pressure changes, salt/water changes, oxygen/carbon dioxide ratio changes, tissue inflammatory changes, minor head or brain traumas, and even altitude changes. If the brain does not have a totally "floating free space" (cerebral spinal fluid [CSF]) between it and the inner skull walls, pressure will be transmitted directly to the brain.........not causing permanent brain damage over a period of years, but rather over a period of minutes to hours, after which time the brain is just as likely to find its way floating in formaldehyde than in CSF.
